Simple Things That Make Me Happy


Sorry if you thought I was doing a giveaway. I just wanted to talk about giveaways.

Forgive me?

I’ve gone through a lot of my Google Reader. The ones that I read always haven’t been touched. Ironic, huh? Because those I read in depth and comment most of the times.

I realized I missed A LOT of giveaways. Is the beginning of August the giving month? I am now depressed that I’ve missed out on some great ones. But then again there’s one like the IPad that I didn’t enter in because I don’t feel the need to enter. I rather someone else that really wants it, wins it! So I’ve entered in none so far.



It’s always great to see old friends, now acquaintances, doing well.

One of my old high school buddies just signed with the Royals a few days ago in the MiLB. For those that don’t know, that’s the Kansas City’s Burlington Royals in Minor League Baseball. Cool, huh?

I like hearing good news and I’m so happy for him. He’s grown so much. One day he’s going to get there and I’ll be able to point at the telly and say, “I knew him in high school!” I’m pretty sure I have a few pictures with us in it from those disposable camera days and his autograph in my yearbook.



I am super excited for Sissy and Brett! We’ve been talking about dresses, venues, music, and other happy stuff. They want it simple with lots of dancing.

I wish I was a Wedding Planner … or better yet Party Planner. Seems like SO much fun. Lots of organizing and all that jazz!

Oh and lately I’ve been remodeling some things in the house. Like my bedroom. My bedroom kind of looks like an office now and I joke, “Come into my office!” when Mum walked into my room today and we talked about changing some things up in the master bedroom. Hope Dad doesn’t mind the changes that will be made soon!



I’ve been foam rolling my back whenever it aches a bit. Or wherever else when I watch telly.

It’s really been helping me. Especially with those long hours at the desk in front of the computer.

Speaking of … I’ve been watching some POP Pilates videos and I think I’ll start those first and see where they’ll take me. They aren’t too long so it seems will fit in my work schedule perfectly. Fingers crossed.

If you know any POP Pilates workouts, let me know! Smile

Happy Sunday!


Reunion with Tan

I haven’t seen an old friend of mine, Tan, for 2+ years. And today we did what we always do. Go to the mall.

I’ve been doing Paleo but that dang food court didn’t have anything Paleo so I went for the Philly Cheesesteak Wrap. If I’m going to break my eats, I’m going to go all the way. And I got a bag of chips. I know, I know. I declared today as cheat day.

After lunch we walked around the mall for over 2 1/2 hours. Since he paid for my lunch, I paid for our dessert. Yum! I’m not a fan of cookies, but I was craving some.

On the way home, I took the long way and passed by my old high school. Don’t be fooled. My high school was at least 1/2 a mile long with two floors. This doesn’t count the Athletic part of the high school. I know they say college is the time of your lives but I really, really loved high school. I knew who I was and who I belonged with. Now I feel lost.


Since I’m home now. For good. With a job and all. I’m going to remodel my room. Excited. I have a plan set out and I’m ready for changes!

I cleaned up a bit before realizing I need to take a picture since these changes will be dramatic.

Halfway there. I’m done for the day. Time to rest up for another day of clean up.

It’s been thundering really loud and I’m scared! So Rocky is sleeping with me tonight. I haven’t been sleeping on either of the beds and have been on the floor. Lucky him. Winking smile
